on behalf of Pauldavis:

Just finished one of my first projects using Lumion.

It was a series of still images demonstrating the remodel of a senior living complex. I Think Lumion did a decent job for creating the stills.

I am not sure of the time it took in lumion. I wasn't really logging my time per image. It did take longer than it will in the future because there was a learning curve to figuring out getting the scene the way I liked it.

I used sketchup, Lumion, and photoshop to create these renderings. I have a gtx660 and rendering time varied between 10 minutes to 2 hours for the stills.

Very athmospheric indoor-shots. 
My favorite is Nr. 4.

Thanks rad,  I'm glad you like them.  Well I think my secret was to use almost all of the settings possible. Global illumination was the biggest factor but depth of field,  reflections,  and all the other goodies were used.  Also I  added normal maps to  of my materials,  and added emulation to all  my ceilings so they didnt turn out darker than they would naturally look.  Then I just tweaked the settings over and over till I got it how I liked it.  These are some of my first renderings with lumion so I'm hoping some of the lumion veterans on this forum can give some pointers on how to improve on these.  I don't know if any of my process has any value to anyone else but I'm happy to share anything I did,  so let me know if you have any specific questions.

Pauldavis, Congratulations, I really enjoyed your pictures.

Enjoyed the effect of glass and porcelain in the image 5.

As our colleagues, I also prefer the image 4. This image, the radiance from the ceiling got better.
 

You could achieve the same results in other images, if you wear omini lamps to complement the effect of radiosity. Simply place the bulbs in ceiling aligned with luminaries and adjust with same color floor or objects that are below.

Awesome,  thank you for for the great tip! So I would place the Omni light just above the ceiling and an existing light so that the ceiling illuminates as though light was hitting it from below?  Do I adjust the omni light color to match the ceiling? Are you also adding emulation to the ceiling?  Your examples look great by the way.  Thanks.

The function of the omni light is to simulate bounce light from the ground or any other object and reaches the ceiling. so we must observe the color of the objects in the scene.

See this scene. Has only simulation radiosity

I think you should use radiosity, I also use. However we use this feature to complement and improve the illumination of the scene.

Is radios it the same as global illumination? If so I did use it on all these images.  That and I added emulation to the ceilings so they were not so dark.  Im gonna try adding some point lights to them like others suggested and see how it looks.
